Stitching in the Hills

It was lovely to get together with so many happy ladies at our retreat, Stitching in the Hills, at Warrambui near Canberra last weekend. We had 60 ladies attending the retreat this year and we had a really relaxing weekend of stitching, laughter and friendship. On Friday we set up the room with our cheerful kits all ready for the ladies. Fiona has more pictures on her blog. After a yummy roast dinner we opened the doors so the ladies could see what they were going to make over the weekend.

 These were our projects this time. It was lovely to work with such lovely colours of wool felt.

 Here are some of the ladies busy stitching.

 Terrie and Najelle came out on Saturday and set up a lovely Hobbysew stall. Everyone enjoyed a bit of shopping.

 Here we are ready for the day.

Finally finished the appliqué on my In the garden quilt, just need to get the last 3 blocks out together and then get them all together, still aiming to get them finished before the beginning of December. Not sure it will be a beautiful as yours Sylvia!
